About Sue &; Andy Bailey
My wife and I live in Bury Lancashire and have both taken early retirement in order to enjoy life to the full. We are blessed with two daughters and son-in-laws who have at the time of writing provided us with 4 grandchildren. The villa in Moraira is our home for most of the winter and we spend much of our time there ensuring that it is in prime condition for all our guests.
Sue &; Andy Bailey purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Sue &; Andy Bailey chose Moraira
We first fell in love with Moraira in 1997 when we bought a small property in the area. We find the people very friendly and due to the cosmopolitan nature of the residents there is a vast and diverse choice of restaurants. Due to there only being a small number of hotels, Moraira has managed to retain it's village -type atmosphere while, at the same time, offering lots of activities and places of interest to visit. Despite the fact that we have been there several years we continue to discover new beaches,coves and fascinating mountain villages where the Spanish way of life has remained unchanged.
What makes this Villa unique
One of the best things about the villa is the fact that all the family can come and stay and that we have a child friendly environment for our grandchildren to enjoy. We also take immense pleasure in our garden and enjoy the peace and seclusion of the different seating areas.Our guests love being able to pick their own fruit from a selection of fig, orange, olive, grapefruit, pomegranate, pear and lime trees. And what better way to enjoy your pre-dinner drink than by picking a fresh lemon to enhance your gin and tonic. A night-time BBQ or paella prepared in the spacious outdoor kitchen makes a pleasant prelude to the final swim in the floodlit pool.

Arrived at the Villa earlier than we should have done due to an early flight and everything was ready, spotlessly clean, lovely spacious Villa, Ample room for our 3 families (8 of us in total) The bedrooms are all downstairs, big and roomy with lovely Aircon that we definitely needed at this time of year.
The garden and pool area is to die for, we used these every single day as we did the outside kitchen. There are only 6 Sunbeds so it’s a good job there were only 6 adults in our party.
I would say you would be better off with a car staying at this Villa. It is a fair distance from the main beach and town. It is walkable (about 30 minutes) but it is all up hill on the way back and in the height of the summer is a killer. There was a few people jumping in the pool when we got back, however we did walk it down and get a few taxis back (about 10 euros)
Overall we had a lovely stay at this villa and Moriara is great with lots of places to eat and drink our favourite being bar la Cabana.
Thank you for your great review. We look forward to hearing from you again.
Home from home!!
Lovely villa,not a bad thing to say. Very homely and inviting with absolutely everything needed to make our stay a home from home! Andy,Sue and friends could not of been more helpful. Would highly recommend it for a fun family holiday xxx
Thank you,thank you,thank you. It means a lot that’ you enjoyed your stay.
Great place lovely lovely !!!
Thank you very much for your review. We work hard all year to have the house in tip top condition and your comments make it all worth while.
The property was well presented clean and tidy the beds are a little hard but everything worked grea
We had a great stay 4 adults and six children from 11 down to 5 the pool area and kitchen was a complete godsend we only used the lounge in the house in the evening to watch tv and play card games.
You need a car when staying at the property as the walk back up from the village is a bit stressful we found a lovely cove and beech about four miles wet of the roundabout at the bottom of the hill which the kids loved.
There were plenty of laces to eat out in the evenings but we generally stayed at the villa and ate after the children were in bed.
The drive from and to the airport takes about an hour but the directions were spot on and we found the place without any hitches but wouldn't like to try to find the upstairs key pad in the dark the instructions need to have added that you need to open a door before you see the keypad. This is the only complaint and a very minor one at that.
Thank you for your favourable review. We do receive many compliments about our spacious and well equipped outdoor facilities and bar area. I am sorry that the beds were not to your liking but we have found in the past that the majority of our clients prefers firm beds.
We have taken note of the comments you made about the arrival at the house and have amended our instructions accordingly.
Nice property with lots of room and facilities.
The property looks very nice it has plenty of room and good facilities (2 kitchens, one indoor and one outdoor, nice size swimming (very clean) pool with a very good filter system, a nice Permanent BBQ area, television/living room, WIFI, outdoor toilet and shower facility etc.
Unfortunately we did have a lot of problems with the electrical system. The fuses blew regularly, something you don't realy expect nowadays anymore seen the electrical demands of households, especially in this case as it is a proporty for many (4 bedrooms with 4 double beds and and four singles) people. In other words the electrical system could possibly use a modernization. A second minor point was the Wifi bandwith which was very limited, again looking at the large number of people the property could hold and the demand nowadays for internet for phones and tablets etc. Besides that great property in a nice location, would go there again.
Thank you for your positive comments on our home in Moraira.
We are so sorry for the electrical problems you encountered. Fortunately We do have a great support team in place and we're able to send an electrician the next working day who diagnosed the problem as a faulty air con unit. He was able to provide a temporary repair to maintain cool air and a new unit was ordered and installed on change over day. We have 4 air con units in the house and this was the newest one and as Sod's law dictates it was just out of warranty.
The house had a complete rewire 4 years ago.
We accept there is a weakish wi fi signal in the area but Telefonica have assured us that they are updating the line. We have now installed a new wifi system with a minimum of 10 mega bites for the 2018 season.
We are glad you would like to return to our home and look forward to receiving your booking despite the hic ups.
More than we ever dreamt of !!!!
